Accountability for gender crimes remains a critical challenge for most post-conflict societies.1
The pervasive violations that women experience during armed conflicts are rarely integrated
into transitional justice processes, which entrenches existing inequalities and fosters a
culture of impunity for gender crimes.2 This paper highlights the advocacy strategies and
activities implemented by FIDA-Uganda to engender transitional justice mechanisms in
northern Uganda in order to end impunity for gender crimes. (author’s abstract)
